Thursday, October 5 – Full Hunter’s Moon Hike. 7:30PM-8:30PM.

Thursday, October 5 – Full Hunter’s Moon Hike. 7:30PM-8:30PM. Co-sponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).  Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reasons. The leaves are falling from trees, the deer are fattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead. Because the fields were traditionally harvested in late September or early October, hunters could easily see fox and other animals that come out to eat the fallen grains. Join us for this leisurely paced one-hour hike in Vineyard Field, the field behind the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) and afterward, for some convivial conversation and refreshments in the moonlight.  Meet at the SoFo Museum parking lot, 377 Bridgehampton Turnpike, 200 yards north of the RR tracks. Leader: Jean Dodds, 631-599-2391.

Sunday, October 15 – Sundays at 2: Box Turtle Survey – Lisa Prowant. 2PM.

Sunday, October 15 – Sunday at 2 Event: Box Turtle Survey with Lisa Prowant.  2PM. Turtles are a unique and important part of global biodiversity. Eastern box turtles are a charismatic species native to Long Island, and as such, they are an integral part of Long Island ecosystems. Box turtles disperse seeds and are prey to several species. Box turtle populations are declining throughout much of their range. These declines are predicted to continue in the future with climate change. Understanding the natural history of an organism is often the first step to its conservation. This presentation will explore the life history of Eastern box turtles and detail some contemporary conservation research involving this species.  Lisa Prowant is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Ecology and Evolution of Stony Brook University. Lisa’s PhD dissertation research investigates the role of biotic interacts in conservation planning using the Eastern box turtle as a case study. This research will improve current understanding of box turtle trophic interactions and their population fluctuations and trends in order to improve conservation planning under climate change.  The Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center is located at 1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike, just north of Scuttle Hole Road (look for the Open flag and follow the driveway to the end).  All Sundays at Two events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.  For more info contact Dai Dayton, 631-745-0689.

Bark: Get to Know Your Trees
Sunday, October 22nd
1:00pm – 4:00pm
A Special 20th Anniversary Workshop
FLPG Member:  $15
Non-Member:  $25*
*includes FLPG membership
ISA CEUs Available:  3.00
The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join Michael for an exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. As you hone your perceptive abilities you will learn about a system for identifying tree species by their bark, and discover why such a variety of bark characteristics exist. Why do some species have smooth bark, while on others it is thick and broken? Why does bark peel

Michael will be available to sign copies of his books, Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast and Drawing Trees and Leaves: Observing and Sketching the Natural World. For more information visit: www.knowyourtrees.com

As a freelance naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator and educator Michael strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling fashion. He writes and teaches about the fascinating structure, function, and ecology of trees—including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood—for audiences at all levels of experience, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home.

The Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center is located at 1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton – just north of Scuttle Hole Road (look for the Open flag and follow the driveway to the end).  Refreshments will be served.  For more information contact Jean Dodds, 631-599-2391 or greenbeltnews@aol.com.
